When an orphaned Italian boy is found in a heap of rubble, a survivor in a World War II battle, he is taken in by American soldiers.  Adopting their customs, and the rather unusual name of Joe Peas, he comes to love America and all it represents.  Years later, as an itinerant house-painter, Joe is injured while on the job and becomes a short-term resident of a care facility. A private man, he seems to always have a positive influence on those with whom he comes into contact.  But having enjoyed a degree of anonymity over the years his efforts to help those at the home, whom he now calls his friends, may come at a high price to Joe.
